Entry Description

The Tamar Development project is an intricately
composed Government Complex, integrating three
principal buildings and the landscaped Civic Park. The
design concept of the Tamar Development embodies four
themes: Openness, Enjoyment, Sustainability, and
Communication. And above all, it is about the spirit of
sharing: how a prime site in the centre of the city could
be shared not only by 3 branches of government, but also
by the public in such a way that all parties could function
without under interference from one another, while at the
same time sharing the common attribute of the city, i.e.
the harbour and the waterfront. Therefore, the Legislative
Council Complex and the Chief Executive’s Office are
located on either sides of the site, flanking the Civic Park
and angling towards the Waterfront to provide a gesture
of unity for the whole development.
